I spent most of the afternoon cooking today. I love Mexican food and I don't mean the Tex Mex stuff you get here in the US but real, authentic Mexican food. My actual favorite Hispanic restaurant is actually a family from Honduras. The have a stewed pork dish that is to die for. I took a dive at it today and made a really fantastic Mexican dinner if I say so myself. Everything came out absolutely perfect.

The menu today is:

Guisado de Puerco con Tomatillos (Stewed Pork)
Arroz Amarillo (Mexican Rice)
Re-fried Beans with Havarti cheese
A Spicy Jicima/Apple/Cantaloupe/Orange salad

Allie, I do make tortillas but that is something that I am not very good at yet. It looks so easy but in reality, it is pretty tough. It is really hard to get them thin enough to remain flexible. I always think I have them thin enough and when I cook them they are still too thick and they split when I fold them.

Have never tried to make tortillas myself.. but did a decent job of some naan bread once..My family is partial to indian and thai style for special occasions.

hubby is on a mission to get a 6 pack for his 45th birthday in september, so everything is chicken/fish/steak and salads at the moment.(the kids ate the meatloaf though)
